54 minutes of this is dull.
The last 2 minutes of HTE is amazing.

It took about 20 tries but I finally love this, and haven’t stopped listening to it for 3 days. This thing is like a trance, I get so lost in it. So glad I persevered, because I knew I would like it one day.

I love Marina, but this is quite disappointing. It’s still better than most other pop albums at the moment, but the singles were so good that I was expecting more. It’s frontloaded as hell, and then has no really captivating songs after that. I respect that it’s all self written, but some of the lyrics are so on-the-nose that it becomes quite a lecturous listen and a little too preachy.

I will never ever get the appeal of terrible music.

Wow this is surprisingly good. Enough For You and Brutal are brilliant.

Hey there! How are you? I'm making a list and I would like to know: what do you think is a perfect album to listen to in a certain city and which city would that be? Try and choose a city from your country or state/province. If you want to add some words on why you would choose that album, they will be welcome. Thank you!!

Hello there! What is an album that you've given a 100 score, and why so?

Simple explanations are fine enough, but detailed reasoning is of course welcome. If you have multiple 100s, then just pick one of them as your answer. It's for a list by the way. Thanks in advance, and have a great day!

Hey. This is a great idea that may help many albums get recognized.
That said, I think I will give you more than one rec (and less obvious artists) to broaden the scope and showcase multiple countries from the region.

These are some of my favs:
Argentina- Roberto Lara- The Guitar of the Pampas
Bolivia- Matilde Casazola- Una Revelación!
Brazil- Clementina de Jesus, Doca & Geraldo Filme- O canto dos escravos
Chile- Quilapayún-Cantata de Santa María de Iquique
Peru- Chabuca Granda-Tarimba negra
Uruguay- Eduardo Darnauchans- Sansueña
Venezuela- Soledad Bravo-Cantos revolucionarios de América Latina

As for compilations, these are highly recommended:
-Diablos del ritmo: The Colombian Melting Pot 1960-1985
-The Roots of Chicha: Psychedelic Cumbias from Peru
-Choro 1906-1947
-Musique de Guyana
-Lowland Tribes of Ecuador
